With flecks of thyme and a touch of tangy sour cream, this farro mushroom hash would be great on its own, but finishing it off with perfectly poached eggs puts it over the top. It's a winner.
Seashore mussels are stewed in a simple but exotic broth of coconut milk, lime, cilantro, lemongrass, and chilies. Spooned over rice noodles, there is nothing better than this easy, exotic one-pot classic.
A little bit of pickled ramp brine brings an earthy, slightly sweet onion flavor to this classic cocktail. Make sure to use a fresh bottle of vermouth, and store your vermouth in the fridge for no more than a month.
The recipe may look like it calls for a lot of sugar, but it's worth it. This sherbet is lush, velvety and, if I say so myself, better than any I've had from a scoop shop.

Creamy, rich crème brûlée makes an outstanding pie filling.
Fresh herb pesto makes a flavorful dressing for a springy pasta salad studded with green peas. Chopped walnuts add delicious crunch and fresh lemon juice brightens it up.
Sure, shellfish and cured pork almost always go well together—something I learned from Bill Buford's book Heat, a point he drives home over and over again. But then you take crème fraîche and mix in horseradish, then amp up the whole thing with spicy sambal paste? Too intriguing to pass up.
This pickled rhubarb is both sweet and tart. I like to cut the stalks into lengths that fit in the jar neatly and slice it into bite-sized pieces just before adding to a cheese plate or tossing into a grain salad.
This buttery, rich white chocolate bread pudding is doused in a luscious white chocolate sauce
Chicken stock, white wine, and cream created the body and richness of this pan sauce, whose dominent mustard flavor was a strong complement to a pork tenderloin, but not so overpowering that it hid the flavor of the meat itself.
Crunchy, dunkable graham crackers get a twist with the addition of chocolate and coffee.

Joy Wilson, author of Joy the Baker Cookbook is a single gal, and being single means lots of time spent speculating about Mr. Right. She describes her Extra Crumb Coffee Cake as "The perfect husband. It has the perfect balance of substance and sweet tenderness. The filling brings in just a bit of spice. A little romance (or chocolate) never hurt anyone either, right? The topping is full of extra heart-melting goodness." Pretty sweet, Pretty sweet, don't you think?

Preparing a homemade version of the popular store-bought pastries is extremely easy, and placing rows of jelly beans in the middle is a vibrant way to make use of any straggler candy.
